Abstract: In this session, we will discuss how Databand is helping data engineering teams productize and scale machine learning pipelines. We will present a real-world use case in the retail technology space but will describe how the underlying functionality is generally applicable for any data/ML engineering team. The talk will cover a typical day of running large-scale scheduled ML data prep & training processes, monitoring for issues in jobs and data quality, managing ML-specific alerts, and faster debugging. Attendees will learn how Databand layers onto production systems to provide best-in-breed monitoring for the ML lifecycle.
